Great project ; very impressive.

You are obviously have quite a bit of electrical experience.

I would remove one of the rear struts and visit a spring shop.
They might have to fabricate something custom to handle that much weight properly.

The hatch model is heavier in the back end that the sedan ; even before the batteries.
Upper strut braces to reduce body flex might be a necesity as well.


A proud member of the club.
